4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opaque warm peach pour, dense, abundant clouds of ivory bubbles. Sun-warmed dessert apples in the nose, vanilla, clove, just a faint little lactic note—icing on the cake. Spritzy, tinglely-tangly wheat, restrained honey sweetness. Teaming with microscopic points of fruit and spice, such complexity that no sip registers quite the same: now orange blossoms, now cloves, now lemon, now coriander seed. Hops restrained but when sought for, definitely show: a firm resiny presence lending some nice shape. Soft and full on the palate. Delicious and completely endearing.

Pours hazy, pale yellow with a tall white head.
Orange, banana, clove, wheat aroma.
Taste is bright and zesty...banana, spices, orange malt, wheat malt....Pretty much the benchmark for the style.....

Cloudy yellow color with big white head. Aroma is yeast, banana and spices. Taste is a mixture of bananas and spices with little vanilla aftertaste. Best wheat beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy golden, tall creamy head. Excellent retention. The nose is yeasty combining a dozen of spice plus proper amount of banana. Medium body. Oily. The flavour gives you what you expect but this is extremely smooth & well balanced. A perfect play of malt, yeast and hops. Mild bitterness through the ending & aftertaste. This is really delicious.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bardzo obfita piana drobno pęcherzykowa z większymi bąblami gdzieniegdzie. Barwa złota, mętna. Aromat bardzo czysty, klasycznie bananowo-goździkowy z dodatkiem drożdży i skórki od chleba pszennego. W smaku na początku kwaskowość o charakterze zakwasu chlebowego szybko przechodzi w cytrusową słodycz, jest rześko, odświeżająco, średnie, lekko szczypiące nagazowanie i niewielka przyprawowo-kwiatowa goryczka na finiszu wnoszą pijalność tego piwa na wyżyny!

Great aroma - some wheat but a nice slightly ripened banana...Taste not as standout - just not that much flavor. not really impressive for this highly rated of a beer. easy to drink

16oz draft pour. Thin white head and golden yellow color. Smell was a typical wit with apricot and citrus. Taste was crisp and wheaty with smooth finish and no real bitters.

On tap at Old Nick’s pub, Eugene Oregon. Amazing beer that’s very simple, yet hits the spot in a way few others can. I’ve also had this out of the bottle, too. Price to value ratio is very good. This is a high quality beer at a fair price. Taste is excellent. Banana bread and hints of licorice were detected, coupled with sweet grains. I’m just gonna sum it up by saying this beer is great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Towering fine & dense white head, very stable over very hazy, pale orange beer; Banana, not much else. Hint at basmati rice, and raffia. Sweet-sourish banana; lactic/wheat acidity, citric even. Spritzy carbonation, refreshing, wheatslickness, medium bodied. Not bad, but I’m surprised that this brewing institute can’t do better than some of its big company competitors.
